Airing on Tuesday, July 14, 2015: From Athens, Marketplace’s Kai Ryssdal talks to Nick Voglis, a sandwich-shop owner, about the changes to his business and life wrought by the Greek debt crisis. Plus, on the day a deal is announced with Iran, we look at one aspect of the untapped potential it presents: its people. Demographics are on Iran’s side right now. Iran has a young, educated, mostly middle-class population — what opportunities does this offer the country? What does it offer U.S. and other international companies wanting to do business there? We explore.
